Flyn combines an artistic sensibility with a technical understanding of digital media management, and he is great with excel, photoshop, and powershell. He did QA and traffic for large quantities of digital artwork on a regular basis for PR and for use on the Netflix service, with impressive speed. Flyn can very effectively analyze large amounts of data. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about his field. Flyn showed personal direction and a strong desire to innovate when he developed a method for quickly searching our large server of hundreds of thousands of assets. He is smart, focused, responsive, delivers exceptional work, and provides great feedback. Flyn does a wonderful job of juggling many projects. Flyn has a proactive attitude, and a persistent dedication to detail.

"During my short time working with Flyn, I came to know a creative, dedicated and intelligent individual that was helping the NetFlix Content Marketing and Creative Services team grow in support of the company. In addition to efficiently acquiring and processing promotional assets from studio vendors to support the product offerings and distribution of NetFlix’s web streaming service, Flyn was tasked to use his computer scripting skills to re-organize and build the foundation of a digital asset management structure within the department’s network server. As a fellow contractor, I recognized his talents in supporting NetFlix’s efforts during his contracted time and was honored to assist him in his endeavors during this period."
— Kerry Reis, Content Marketing/Creative Services Freelance Coordinator, Netflix, worked directly with Flyn at Netflix


"Flyn is a meticulously detailed orientated individual. He takes direction extremely well, and will add finesse to all projects assigned. He is self-motivated with a yearning to make it better, faster and more efficient. Flyn is an asset to any company that is lucky to hire him."
